*I have been going through my drafts. I found this little gem. I assume I never posted because I didn’t have a picture. I happened to remember the picture below is on my computer still. Zen isn’t 1 in the picture, like he is in my post, but he is still crazy and the picture is fitting.
When you give a one year old his dinner he is going to want what everyone else is having instead. When you give him what everyone else is having he is going to want his very own bowl and spoon, just like everyone else.
Once you give him his spoon and bowl with “big person” food you are going to have to let him feed himself or he will scream.
When you let a one year old feed himself with his very own bowl and his very own spoon you are most assuredly,at some point, going to catch that spoon as it zooms through the air.
When you give a one year old his very own bowl full of food that bowl will end up upside down on the floor and food will splatter everywhere.
When you give a one year old dinner in his very own bowl with his very own spoon and the spoon flies through the air and the bowl lands spectacularly on the floor upside down you will have a guffawing group of children who all yell “We told you it was a bad idea Mom!!!!”
Needless to say, when you give a one year old dinner there is never a dull moment.
